The Last Battle of Vietnam
It never occurred to me, ever before,
That our Navy would win the Vietnam War.
When they took to their boats in this year of elections,
With the mission of making some major corrections
I shared their belief, John should not be elected,
And their view overdue, truth should be resurrected.
Yet I questioned the course theyd set themselves for,
Knowing how John was loved by the media whore.
Ignored and dismissed by the media queens
Being shrewd, savvy sailors they still found the means
To reach out to the people, to open their eyes
To a phony John Kerry and his war story lies.
With their very first ad, they torpedoed his boat,
A Cambodian Christmas would no longer float.
His heroics unraveled, his stories fell flat,
Especially that one bout his magical hat.
John called on his lawyers and media whores,
And threatened the Swiftees with vile legal wars.
But these warriors kept charging back into the fire,
And made the folks wonder, Is Kerry a Liar?
Till the question of whether hes telling the truth
Was still in their minds in the election day booth.
So the brave Swiftees gave us what wed not had before,
They gave us our victory in the Vietnam War.
Those brave, stalwart sailors, falsely labeled as liars,
Stood firm and stood tall, kept directing their fires,
Steadfast, unrelenting, they served once again,
And defeated John Kerry, these honorable men.
All Vets can take pride, yes all, not just some,
That we won the last battle of Vietnam.
It took far too long to bring an end to our war
But we did, November Second, Two Thousand Four.
To our Brothers, forever, on that long black Wall,
Youve been vindicated now, one and all.

This great poem/ode to the Swift Vets needs some legs, bumps, and pings.
CH for your ping list.
FYI and ping lists.
one I got today:
think Mr. Kerry found that what goes around COMES AROUND! Truth, Honor and the American way sounds from our past.
Bold John sailed forth in his faux scow,
Till the Swiftees fired across his bow;
And legions of irate attorneys,
Could not defend Cambodian journeys,
Nor stories of his fabled hat,
So voters sensed they smelled a rat.
And while the networks denied them prime,
The Swiftees surely got their time.
While John screamed it was all a smear,
O'Brien came across sincere,
And forced Big John to duck the press,
To run, to hide from his specious mess.
But relentless those old Swiftee guys,
They bit, hung on, exposed his lies.
These brave old warriors once again
Stood for their country, for their kin.
They made us all look one more time
At the traitor who'd charged them with crime,
And gave false witness to their deeds,
For nothing more than political needs.
It's a smear proclaimed the New York Times,
Those liars all committed crimes.
Chris Matthews raged, foamed at the mouth,
Still the turncoat's campaign headed south.
So the Swiftboat Veterans' charges stuck,
And made poor John a sitting duck.
He had no answers, no glib replies,
To cover up his treasonous lies;
That made us think, our minds aware,
The Swiftees had some truth in there;
What if he'd faked his combat valor,
Were all those medals tinged with pallor?
Dan Rather would not pay them heed,
But still the Swiftees made John bleed.
The mainstream pundits called them liars;
But no lefty slant could staunch these fires.
The blazes that these Swiftees set,
Were burning John Boy's ass you bet;
And those Swiftboat fires just burned away,
Till they fried John's ass on election day.
Now all you heroes on that Wall,
Take solace seeing Kerry fall.
This scheming "pol" who stained your name,
Has been denied his claim to fame.
The Swiftees stood and did their best,
Denied the traitor his life's quest.
You can rest in peace our honored kin,
Your honor restored by honorable men.

Yeah. Way to go, Swiftboat Vets!
Please let me know if you want ON or OFF my General Interest ping list!. . .don't be shy.
MSM still refuses to tell the real story about Hanoi Kerry!
ABC, AP, CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, NBC, NY Times
is part of THE cover up of the election.
Do you wonder why the Left whines about the election results?
They still think Hanoi Kerry is a "war hero"
They don't know what a traitor he is!
And I don't know about you but
I'm sick and tired of the Right media saying
"what an honorable man Senator Kerry is"
Why isn't the Right all over Hanoi Kerry
to be impeached from the US Senate?
"In a bombshell development that could have turned President Bush's victory into a landslide
had it come out before the election, John Kerry wrote in his Vietnam war diary that
he met with "terrorists" in Paris - a revelation that "flabbergasted" his running mate John Edwards."
And still the MSM,
ABC, AP, CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, NBC, NY Times
hide the truth from America.
And still 99 US Senators refuse to impeach this traitor.

What a great poem by a man who served in Nam.
Someone should take Kerry to court to remove him from office, seeing as he aided and conforted the enemy..

'The Last Battle of Vietnam'
What a terrific poem.
My liberal friends amaze me with their perspectives:
1) Kerry is a hero because he was anti-war at a time when they were anti-war.
2) He was honorable because he "didn't want soldiers to die" and "we were losing"
3) He was just a young kid who didn't know any better.
4) The swfitboat vets are just "picking on details and no one can really know what happened"
The liberals are not changing their tune.
The Swiftees have hit the Snake in the head with a shovel...but the Snake is still in the field!
Thank's for those links. I'd been to lzxray.com before but not those particular pages. Tomorrow is the 39th anniversary of LZ Xray day 1. No better time to say thanks for your service.
